If You Stay At Home, Sony Will Give You 4 PS4 Games for Free

It’s called the “Play At Home Initiative” and it’s aimed at making social distancing easier

Starting today, Sony is letting all PS4 owners download four free games. You’ll get Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and an indie game known as Journey. These free games are offered as part of Sony’s Play at Home Initiative, a movement to help keep us all occupied during the COVID-19 pandemic and you can download them until May 5, 2020.

The Nathan Drake Collection will get you three of the four Uncharted games – Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. There is a fourth game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, but with the first three in the series available for free, it’s not likely that you’ll need to pony up for it anytime soon. The other game, Journey, is an Indie game that is actually quite gorgeous in design and gameplay dynamics. It did launch way back in 2012, but don’t let its age fool you – it has aged nicely.

Once you claim the Uncarted collection and Journey, they will be yours forever. The only caveat here is if you live in Germany or China. If that’s the case, then you’ll getting the platformer Knack 2 with Journey instead of the Uncharted collection.

It’s worth noting that these free games are only one part of Sony’s Play at Home Initiative. The second part included establishing a fund to help smaller studios survive during this economic struggle. When the initiative was announced by Sony CEO, Jim Ryan, he spoke on the two parts:

“First, providing free games to help keep the PlayStation community entertained at home; and finally, establishing a fund to help smaller independent game studios who may be experiencing financial difficulties continue building great experiences for all gamers.”

So far, that fund has managed to pull together $10 million for indie game studios that have been struggling during the pandemic, so kudos to Sony for that. And, let’s not deny the fact that Sony’s free games split the different between AAA and Indie games as well, so that’s pretty cool.
